The assignment in this slide show work somewhat differently than the previous ones. Rather than answering several small questions throughout the slideshow, your job is to work on one larger project, and to use the resources in this slideshow to help you accomplish this project.
Using Publisher (Mrs. Whalen can help you) you are to create a newspaper "front page." You are a time traveler reporter in the Holy Land and your newspaper should reflect this. Your first page should include at least two articles, two pictures, and at least one scripture verse.
Mrs. Brecht goes to Jerusalem on Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the season of Lent. While in Jerusalem, Mrs. Brecht will visit the Old City, the Wailing Wall, the Mount of Olives, and the Garden of Gethsemane. She will walk the Via Dolorosa (the path of the Stations of the Cross) and visit Jesus' tomb in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
She will then travel to the Galilee region, the area in which Jesus ministered. There, Mrs. Brecht will stay on the banks of the Sea of Galilee, walk to Capernaum, and visit the Mount of Olives.
The following slides give you information about these places and the biblical stories associated with them. To complete your assignment for today, you will need to access these websites.

Your "Front Page" Newspaper Articles
(1) Use the previous slides to choose some place, action, miracle, or event that was significiant in Jesus' life. In your article give such details as to where this took place, what happened, who was there, and how eyewitnesses responded to the event (make up an eyewitness).
(2) A second article should report on the same place. This time write about what this place is today. For instance, if you report on Jesus' sermon on the mount, then your second article should be an article reporting on this place in present day: what it looks like, who visits it and why, and so on.
Remember to write using your own words. Be creative!
